THE EFFECT OF USING A VIRTUAL SIMULATION ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT MODEL TO ENHANCE NURSING COMPETENCY AND SELF-EFFICACY OF NURSING STUDENTS
Keywords:virtual simulation model, environmental management, nursing competency, self-efficacy
The purposes of this quasi-experimental research were descripted the effect of using a virtual simulation environmental management model to enhance nursing competency and self-efficacy of nursing students. The samples were 60 nursing students divided into 2 groups. The experimental group (n = 30) and the control group (n = 30) were chosen by simple random sampling. Research instruments were a virtual simulation environmental management model and an achievement test that had KR-20 at .77. The performance skill test was validated for content validity by 5 experts and received the content validity index equaled to .80. The self-efficacy questionnaire was compiled by Suparat Jamghang (Jamghang, 2018) that had the Cronbach's alpha coefficient at .82. Data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and t-test.
The research findings were as follows: the average scores of the knowledge of the experimental group had lower than the control group, it was not statistically significant (p=.157), the average scores of the performance of the experimental group had higher than the control group, it was statistically significant (p=.000) and the average scores of the self-efficacy of the experimental group had higher than the control group, but it was not statistically significant (p=.054).
The research results indicateก that virtual simulation environmental management model can enhance nursing competencies.
